For April 14, 2015, here's how the stock market did today, the top stock market news, and stocks to watch based on today's market moves.
The DJIA Index gained 59 points as reduced expectations for quarterly profit outlooks were offset by energy sector gains and strong earnings results from JPMorgan Chase & Co. (NYSE: JPM). Shares of the banking giant gained 1.5% on the day.
Silver prices today are up, but this is the second straight week of declines.
In the last two weeks, silver and gold have both begun to slide.
Wall Street news today, July 15, 2014: U.S. markets rallied on Monday as concerns over European debt subsided and investors took a more optimistic stance on second-quarter profit season. The financial sector led the charge ahead of their earnings this week. Today's futures were mixed as the markets prepare for Federal Reserve Chair Janet Yellen's semiannual testimony before Congress.

Just four companies in the S&P 500 post earnings this week. The bulk of reports flood in during the weeks of July 21 and July 28, with big retailers reporting in August. Following are a few key earnings reports to watch.
Monday, a stock market crash to the tune of a 12.22% drop hit the Merval Argentina (BCBA: IAR), the most important index of the Buenos Aires Stock Exchange. The index fell to 5,847.78 by market close on Monday – 15% from its all-time high hit just six days prior.
But today, Argentina’s stock market got relief. Stocks are up 1.14% after the country’s lawyer said it will negotiate with a group of hedge funds that are suing over $1.33 billion in bonds.
Action-camera company GoPro Inc. (Nasdaq: GPRO) released more information about its upcoming IPO on Wednesday, stating the company plans to raise up to $427.2 million in the deal. That would give GoPro a valuation of approximately $3 billion.
In today's regulatory filing, the company said that an IPO price range of $21 to $24 per share has been set.
The clock is officially ticking on the GoDaddy IPO after the Internet company filed the prospectus for an initial public offering yesterday (Monday).
While the company did not provide any specifics of the IPO date or IPO price, the filing did say that GoDaddy plans to raise up to $100 million in the IPO.
Stock market news today, June 6, 2014: The Dow Jones Industrial Average reached a record high again on Thursday after the European Central Bank announced plans to cut interest rates and possibly consider stimulus efforts. The ECB slashed its main refinancing rate to a historic low from 0.25% to 0.15%. It also cut its deposit rate to -0.1%.
Investors are crowding into top dividend stocks not simply for their dividend yield, but also because they drive long-term performance in the stock market.
According to a recent study, $100 invested in the S&P 500 in late 1940 would have amounted to $17,460 by the end of 2013 if dividends weren't reinvested, but $265,851 with dividend yields reinvested.
Top financial news today, May 21, 2014: The Dow Jones Industrial Average plummeted more than 100 points on Tuesday after a sharp selloff in retail stocks rattled the markets.
Wall Street news today, May 20, 2014: The Dow Jones Industrial Average was up on Monday despite the fact that a megadeal between the world's leading drug companies fell through. Tech and small-cap stocks saw the strongest performances on the day.
For the first time in over two years, and only the fifth time in a decade, JPMorgan Chase & Co. (NYSE: JPM) missed earnings forecasts when it posted first-quarter 2014 results Friday.
Investors were prepared for a slip in earnings compared with Q1 of 2013. In February, JPM cautioned trading revenue was weak. The warning was especially troubling because the first quarter is traditionally a strong one.
